Mauricio Pochettino the newly appointed Chelsea boss has broken his silence on Mason Mount‘s transfer to Manchester United, stating that he is unaware of the reasons behind the midfielder’s departure from Stamford Bridge.

Mount’s move to Old Trafford was completed earlier this week, marking the end of his 18-year association with Chelsea.

Despite the Blues’ intention to offload several players this summer, Mason Mount was considered a player they were determined to retain, given his significant contributions in recent seasons.


However, the midfielder expressed his desire to leave, and with only a year remaining on his contract, Chelsea decided to cash in on the English international.

“He [Mount] is a Manchester United player now. I don’t know what happened in the past. We need to be focused on our players, move on, and try to build a positive future.”
